* AdaptedOut: Belle's bitchy sisters from the original story. They served no real purpose, so it wasn't really a big loss.

* AdaptedOut: Belle's bitchy vain and selfish sisters from the original story. They served no real purpose, so it Since they were there mainly to demonstrate the original moral lesson (something along the lines of "Don't knock ArrangedMarriage until you've tried it," which they demonstrate by ending up rather unhappy with their freely chosen husbands, such that Belle starts realizing she's doing pretty well for herself living with Beast even though this wasn't her idea and she and he aren't really a big loss.couple yet), that lesson's being cut in favor of TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside means they get cut too.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: No one fails gun safety like Gaston! Gaston, supposedly the best hunter in town, declares his intent to marry Belle by pointing his gun at her. Not a good idea. It is true that his blunderbuss had recently been discharged and should have been empty, but later in the film he demonstrates that the blunderbuss is fully automatic, which presents another problem entirely. This is in addition to the fact that his first scene shows him birding in the middle of town, where any missed shot could end up hitting someone down the street. Which raises the question of why Gaston is considered the local paragon of manliness rather than a public menace.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Remember Maurice's curiosity concerning Cogsworth's... pendulum? Or Cogsworth's indignant reaction to his prodding?
** Gaston mentions that every last inch of him is covered in hair, accompanied by a wink to the camera.
** The feather duster/maid is picked up, held upside down, and has her feathers ripped out during the end fight scene. As an adult, you realize that the [[AttemptedRape feathers are her 'skirt']]... Also, the shrieks she makes as she's being yanked at and how she's rescued by her very angry boyfriend.
** Gaston's attempt to propose to Belle. Especially the end, when he's menacingly advancing towards her, pushing furniture out of the way, and leaning in to kiss her. Admittedly he's still convinced she's just playing hard to get, but it's very worrying and arguably make it ''worse''. Then the look in his eyes when he's told that Belle is in a dungeon....
** There's Lumiere and the featherduster. The two are clearly necking behind the curtains when Belle first leaves her room and she tells him very coquettishly that she's "Been burned by [him] before", and in the subtitles at the very end it says that Lumiere gives a "lusty laugh" when she walks past him with a very... suggestive look in her eyes for a Disney character.
** The Wardrobe tells Belle, that she'll "see what [she has] in her drawers!" before a cloud of moths flies out. It's a pun, as she's referring to the actual drawers, but considering that "drawers" is slang for underpants, and her embarrassed reaction, it's not difficult to imagine the human analogue.
** For some reason after the song "Something There", Mrs. Potts wants to delay answering Chip's question.
-->'''Mrs. Potts:''' ''[singing]'' There may be something there that wasn't there before.\\
'''Chip:''' What's there, Mama?\\
'''Mrs. Potts:''' Shh. [[TheTalk I'll tell you when you're older]].
** During "Human Again" the servants take special care to fix up and make the Beast's bed.
** Anything involving [[AllWomenAreLustful the Bimbettes]]. For instance, You have the three females (the ones in red, green, and yellow) at the water pump. The one in green moves the pump with her elbows, the yellow with her hands, but the one in red pushes it with ''her boobs''.
** Later, during the song "Gaston", while Gaston is singing about how he ate eggs as a lad, the Bimbettes are seen leaning on the bar watching Gaston admiringly. The one in red appears to be ... bouncing her butt up and down.
** There's a brief moment in song "Belle" while Belle is riding on the back of a carriage cart, and one of the merchants selling bread to one of his female customers is [[MaleGaze very clearly eyeing her very noticeably exposed cleavage]]. He's promptly struck on the head by his wife with a rolling pin.
** The Beast is first and one of the very few Disney characters to be completely naked on-screen, right as he gets out of the bath.
*** It helps that his wet fur censors anything that might be considered inappropriate.
** An extra feature on the DVD shows the storyboard and initial sketches for the original opening, which is vastly different from the final product. One of the scenes that was scrapped involved Maurice walking through town and openly propositioned by a prostitute.
* GildedCage: When Belle trades herself in for her father in the Beast's captivity, she initially thinks that she'll be kept in the dungeons, but the Beast takes her to much better arrangements in a guest room. She has the Beast's entire servant staff waiting on her and almost the entire castle to herself -- none of which conceals the fact that she is a prisoner.

* HeteronormativeCrusader: Spoofed - Gaston starts out as very heteronormative in many ways, including trying to reduce Belle to a passive female gender role. When he finds out of about her relationship with the Beast, he takes refuge in something that looks like a cocktail of ThoseWackyNazis and HeteronormativeCrusader mixed together in a shaker built from FantasticRacism.

** The fact that seemingly inanimate objects could move of their own accord (and speak in voiceover) in the Beast's castle in [[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast1946 Jean Cocteau's film version]] was detailing that became the direct inspiration for the Enchanted Objects. Both versions have a villain added in the form of a man who wants to marry Belle, though this may not have been a deliberate callback to the Cocteau film.

* PlayingHardToGet: What Gaston tends to think of Belle.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Gaston is shamelessly misogynistic towards Belle to go in hand with his overinflated ego, frowning upon the idea of a woman reading or thinking independently and seeing the goal of marrying Belle as nothing more than a prize to be won.

* StayInTheKitchen: Gaston's plan for Belle is to cook for him, raise children, and nothing else; certainly no reading or thinking. Though it is worth noting that he considers 'thinking' a dangerous pastime for men too, even ones as masculine as himself.

** Meanwhile, no one in-universe does this better than Gaston! To elaborate: basically, Gaston gets rejected by a cute girl (Belle). So his response is to sulk in a bar, then start a riot, and then rile the villagers into joining him to murder the Beast.

** "Human Again" is also different animation wise. considering it was inserted almost 20 years after the rest of the film was created it tries to blend in, but the difference is clear.

** Played with at the movie's climax where Belle rescues Beast, not physically but emotionally. Beast lost all will to live and basically resigned himself to getting killed by Gaston. Seeing Belle return to the castle gave him incentive to survive the battle.

* VanHelsingHateCrimes: Gaston invokes this in the villagers to rile them up and storm the Castle to kill Beast.

* BadassAdorable: All of the enchanted servants of Beast's castle. They may be living inanimate objects, but they are far from helpless. The mob of villagers learn this the hard way after getting painfully ejected from the castle.
